Ask Slashdot: Which NoSQL Database for New Project?

DorianGre (61847) writes | about 6 months ago


DorianGre (61847) writes "New independent project. Iphones and droids talking to PHP(Symfony) or Ruby/Rails. Each incoming call will be a data element post and I would like to simply write that into the DB for later use. Will need to be able to pull by date or a one of a number of key fields, as well as do trend reporting over time on the totals of a few fields. I would like to start with a NoSQL solution for scaling, but would like something dead simple if possible. Looking at MongoDB, Couchbase, Cassandra/Hadoop and others."

Redis (1)

I've been hearing lots of good stuff about [] . We're using it as a small but integral piece of our Logstash / Kibana farm, and it's probably the most reliable component of that mess. Open source, lots of object oriented data formats and language apis, quite fast. That said, I haven't done much with it personally.

I'm pretty much the Couchbase guy atm, and keeping it running has been somewhat painful (mostly because of pathological clients sending it way too many writes, or apps using the old ASCII memcached protocol instead of the newer resilient smart client APIs). However, Couchbase is hands down one of the fastest, and also has some interesting Couchbase-lite libraries that can automagically keep json sync'd between your mobile client apps and the backend couchbase server farms. It's also quite easy to use the advanced replication and data center sync options, provided you don't run into any bugs that cause it to break. So if you have the time and resources to test, monitor, and care for Couchbase, it's certainly worth a shake.
